-The main additions to extant policy is the addition to ballots of a "​no-confidence"​ option so that if someone is unopposed there is a way for people to express their wishes. It also addresses the issue of what happens if one of two people sharing a position resigns. PI/CQ: Is election by plurality or majority? Response: Plurality. Concerns/​friendly amendments: Richard ​-- what do others think of plurality wins? Response from Ryan: plurality decisions eliminate the needs for run-offs. Concerns/​friendly amendments: none. **Proposed changes to election process passes by consensus.**+The main additions to extant policy is the addition to ballots of a "​no-confidence"​ option so that if someone is unopposed there is a way for people to express their wishes.

-Ryan: Proposal for Hot Water Rent Credit: Ask the board to use $100 per Apartment from the vacancy fund to credit each apartments rent due to loss of hot water in June. During last week's discussion the house was uncomfortable about going ahead with this without asking the CHEA board. PI/CQ: Do we need to have a lawyer'​s opinion about the amount. Ryan: It will be up to the CHEA board to discuss the amount. Corey: 60% of the board is not from LaRe, so the amount may change. The price of hot water includes more than gas because it also includes the infrastructure. ​ CQ/PI: Will people on a voucher program receive the credit? Ryan: yes. Proposed amendment from Meg: make the proposal $50 per bedroom. Concerns: We need to justify our request so as not to support a culture of "cash grabs" by either house. Ryan: that will be up to the lawyer. Friendly amendment: $50 per bedroom or whatever the lawyer recommends, accepted by Ryan. Friendly amendment: make it $50 per person to reflect the inconvenience to individuals. Ryan: not accepted. Jess: If the organization is hiring an attorney the attorney will have loyalty to the organization and may give very minimal rent credits. With the language of the current proposal we might be obligated to accept that. Ryan: Ask for $50 per bedroom, with advisement that Daniel Miller of NASCO suggests having an attorney approve this. Meg: Daniel Miller is the one who suggested $100/apt. La Re will ask the board for $50 per bedroom rent credit. ** Revised proposal: La Re will ask the board to use money from the vacancy reserve fund to give a rent credit of $50 per bedroom for the loss of hot water in June as recommended by Daniel Miller of NASCO. Proposal as amended passes by consensus.**+Ryan: Proposal for Hot Water Rent Credit: Ask the board to use $100 per Apartment from the vacancy fund to credit each apartments rent due to loss of hot water in June.
